Rajanna-Sircilla: A micro artist, Kapilla Naresh, who created a number of wonders in the art, has carved police martyrs memorial statue on a chalk-piece. It took two-hours for him to engrave the memorial statue on six inches chalk-piece.

He has decided to present statue to the District Superintendent of Police Vishwajeet at Police Martyrs Day celebrations to be held at Lingampet of Chandurthi mandal on Saturday.

Not only police martyrs’ memorial statue, Naresh had also sculptured over 300 art forms. Among them 60 are statues of eminent personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi, Dr BR Ambedkar, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Abdul Kalam and historic structures such as Taj Mahal, Charminar and others.

He also curved the figures of the Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, Information Technology Minister K Taraka Rama Rao, and pylons of Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya.

Carving of national anthem accorded much recognition to the artist as he engraved 126 letters of national anthem on a single chalk-piece within one hour period.

A government school teacher by profession, Naresh developed the habit in micro art and sculpted a number of art forms during the last four years. He got 14 awards from different organisations for his works. A native of Thimmapur village of Chandurthi mandal, Naresh is working as a teacher in Pallimaktha Primary School of Konaraopet mandal.

Speaking to the Telangana Today, Naresh said though he used to draw small pictures and others, he developed interest on micro art while he was pursing Teacher Training Course. Initially, he used to draw small pictures on chalk pieces and then it became a habbit for him.
